The people who conduct the interview were really nice although I couldn't shake the feeling I am not being treated seriously as I am an international student. Felt I was wasting their time .

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Most big firms recruit colleges/universities. It was a smooth process & not intimidating at all. You go through stages - from on-campus interviews to your interview day in the office with three different individuals at different levels.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EY (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First Round interview for RAP, first 30 minutes was a case interview. I was the first person interviewed that morning and it seemed the interviewer was just as confused about the case as I was ... But other then that he was friendly and as helpful as he could be. The next part was an interview with a partner, seemed relatively disinterested throughout the interview, so try to keep the partners engaged.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Several interviews over the course of a couple of weeks. Interviews were largely conversational but centered around prior academic success and performance. Was asked numerous questions about prior experience but considering this was my first internship I did not have any. I used anecdotes from everyday life as a student to supplement this instead.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a manager from California. She was super sweet -- made an effort to explain the job position to me and directed me to an office closer to my home. I then had a super day at my local EY office -- lasted around 3-4 hours in total. Everything was paid for including my flight, meals, and hotel. The super day consisted of a group interview (they called it a "panel"), and two one-on-one interviews with managers.

    Took a few weeks to hear back after on-campus interview. Next round was a month or so later at the office. Overall, positive but long process. Would recommend to students looking for a quality first experience in accounting.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. The first round included two 30-minute behavioral interviews on campus. The next round was at their office in Chicago, and it was one behavioral interview and one case. The case interview was simple. It didn't need much preparation. I had 15 minutes to review materials then present the case.
